Default Independence Day challenge

With Valentine's Day drawing near and concluding many ongoing challenges and spring just about 1 1/2 months away I thought adding a more distant challenge (but not *too* distant) might be helpful. I'd love to have you join me!

Set the goal(s) that suit(s) you best.

My goals are to continue to exercise a minimum of 4x per week and to continue the slow and steady weight loss I've been doing since January.

My goal is to be at goal weight by 7/4, which will mean losing a lb a week.

I am also:

1) Counting calories and averaging 1350/day(cycling)
2) Getting some type of exercise 6 days/week
3) Running 2-3 X/week, training for a half-marathon in May

I love the idea of a mid year challenge goal! I failed miserably at the other challenges I signed up for- lets see how this one goes! Independence day is right before my birthday, so it works out well!

I currently weigh about 284, and I'd like to weigh below 250. So that's 34lbs loss by July 4! I think I can do it!

I am kind of new here xD, and I would like to join you guys on this challenge.
I am planning a trip for the summer, and I REALLY need to look at least decent.

Anyway, my goals:
1. I want to loose arround 43ish lbs.
2. I need to start working out, I never have time though, so I'll say walk for at least 20 mins a day and actually workout at least 2 days a week.
3. NOT GIVE UP! I am sick of quiting my diets because I get sad or depressed.
4. Drink 2L of water (min) everyday
5. Keep up the calorie counting!
So, I think that's it? If any of you have any suggestions please feel free to say something, I am kind of improvising here, and if you think my weight loss expectation is too high compared to what I'm willing to work out, please say so! Because I wouldn't know!!!
Also, when does the challenge officially starts? Like when you subscribe, or is there an especific day?


Oh! Right the weights...

SW: 214 (today?)
GW (for this challenge): 171

I'm in! I'm part of the Valentine's Day challenge that's ending...tomorrow, so I'm glad I have a new one to start! I just got back from vacation, and apparently I ate way more than I thought I did, so I'm going to estimate my starting weight at 166.0

I would like to be around my high school weight (145 my senior year), so that's 21 pounds by July 4th. Since I weigh in for another challenge on Wednesdays, that will be when I weigh in for this too.

2/13- 166.0
